Food for Thought

By : 
Patrick Bolerio

In response to the questions to myself
I ponder the depths of solitude.
Is there loneliness found in such an environment?
Is there closure to life’s enigmas?

Found in the quietude of self-imposed isolation,
Is there relief or madness, sadness or joy,
Is there silence or the tumult of a myriad of ?’s unanswered
Still raging in my puzzled mind,
Do I seek appeasement for a troubled heart.
Slumber for a restless mind,
Answers to questions no longer,
At the forefront of my life?
I sigh a great sigh of relief, of deliverance. The dawn of a new day is at hand,
Happy in my own personal space,
Peace and quiet,
Closure.
